Deadline Approaching for Façade Improvement Grants

Was improving the façade of your business or property a New Year’s resolution? The City of Charlotte has a program that can assist you with paying for those improvements you may have been putting off. Its Façade Grant Improvement program assists businesses and property owners with matching funds up to $65,000 for eligible renovations. The next deadline for this program is February 15th.

The program seeks to provide assistance to projects that involve true architectural renovations to the exterior of commercial buildings as well as projects that bring parking, landscaping and signage into conformance with current codes.  For example, projects that are adding new windows and storefront entrances; installing decorative lighting and metal canopies; removing asphalt and installing trees and evergreen shrubs, etc., are eligible to apply. Every project is different and applications are considered based on the unique characteristics of each project.

To find out more about this opportunity, please visit: the Facade Grant webpage or contact Chris Hemans at chemans@charlottenc.gov, 704-432-3025.
